Master of Science
I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Minus Lab at Northeastern University. My primary research focus is a combined Molecular Dynamics/ Finite Element Method approach to modeling mechanical behaviors of Polymer/ Carbon Nanotube Composites.
January 2019 - present
- PhD Student
- Research focuses on understanding and simulating the mechanical behaviors of polymer- carbon nanotube composites using molecular dynamics (LAMMPS) and finite element methods (Abaqus).
September 2016 - December 2018
- Research Assistant
- Research used finite element simulations (COMSOL) to predict areas of thermal refugia under different atmospheric conditions. Using empirical data and point clouds generated from laser scans, we are able to predict fatal zones for intertidal organisms
